Real animal lovers know that their dogs aren’t just pets; they’re family members, too. So when they pass away or go missing, it can hurt just as much as anything.

When Paula Williams’s son lost his best friend, a dog named Kase, he was devastated. They looked all over, hoping to find Kase and bring him home. But after a month, it seemed like he was never going to turn up… until a true miracle happened.

Thankfully, this wayward pup hadn’t wandered too far; Kase was discovered and taken in by a family just down the street. You can really tell just how much this little boy missed his dog. Thank goodness everything worked out okay!
